Lufthansa Technik signs Boeing 747-8 completion contract

Posted 16 May 2011 · Add Comment

Lufthansa Technik has signed a completion contract for a Boeing 747-8 with an undisclosed customer although it is speculated to be the Kuwaiti Royal flight aircraft.

The completion will start in 2012. Additionally, Lufthansa Technik has signed three Letters of Commitment for the same type of aircraft.

Walter Heerdt, senior vice president marketing and sales of Lufthansa Technik, said: "Interest in highly individualised completions of large aircraft at the top level of quality continues to be high. We have been able to support the VIP market with the highest quality, reliability and short layovers for many years. We will continue to do so also with new aircraft types like the Boeing 747-8 of which Lufthansa has ordered 20 aircraft. Besides having started engineering on the first B748 completion project, we are currently preparing our organisation and service portfolio for the arrival of the first Lufthansa 747-8 in 2012. Thus, we will also be able to support our VIP customers with comprehensive maintenance, repair and overhaul services over the complete life cycle of the aircraft through our dedicated VIP aircraft maintenance organisation."  

Currently, Lufthansa Technik has signed contracts or is in final talks about the completion of a considerable number of widebody and more than ten narrowbody aircraft. This means a high workload for its completion centers and only a few remaining layover slots to offer over the next two years.
